A Eumerus hoverfly species from Attard

Post by AlanOuten » Tue Oct 15, 2013 6:20 pm

This hoverfly found on waste ground at Attard on 13 August 2013 is I am sure a Eumerus sp. However it does not seem to match any of the species that we have in the UK and I do not know what species in this genus occur in Malta. Any suggestions regarding the species identification would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Alan
